I saw some clip art a few weeks ago that I really liked…full of the colorful insects of Spring. I really wanted to make some cookies based on what I saw, but none of my insect cookie cutters were going to work.
So I figured I would try to do what Sugarbelle does…. make my insects based on the cookie cutters that I DO have.
Here I just used two circles. I used my smaller circle cookie cutter into the larger one to make space for the insect head.
I used one of my flower cutters to make space for this little guy’s legs. I used the outline of the large circle to base my cut on.
I used a small heart for the antennae. You can see what he looks like when all of the pieces are put together.
Here is the final product. I see a lot of flaws when I look at him. Will I ever have a perfect cookie? I think not! I need to learn to embrace what I do do correctly!
I used the balloon cookie cutter for this bee.
I cut one of the ends off and pointed the other.
He is my favorite. I FORGOT to make wings for him. I was going to use two small circle cut outs and put them above his body. Oh well…the little side wing will have to do, right? ;-)
Here I stretched out one of my heart cookie cutters for the dragonfly wings.
This guy is so fragile! I had to glue him together with icing!
Here I used half of the lips for each side of the body.
This was a first for me. I’ve done a little manipulating with cookie cutters but not to this degree. It was fun! This set is far from perfect, but it was fun to create! Thanks for looking!
